A quick question re: surrender/switch. At what level does this happen
on? If two KV sqauds are fighting each other, do individuals switch and
start firing on their buddies? Does it work only on teh strike claw (bn)
level, squad levelo, or is the switch factor something that comes down
from Clan HQ?

True but since there's very little on teh KV and Jon doesn't usually
dole out such tidbits onthe list, and somethingis put out that makes
sense, then that's what I like to go with.

Yes due to the alienness between the two races and the fact that first
contact starts out with combat, it's very easy for those early
encounters to set the tone for the entire war. Perhaps somewhat like us
and Japan?
